I went looking for a good honest local mechanic. They are not easy to find. Bob took good care in finding the cause and resolving the issue with my vehicle. Bob even showed me the damage done to the radiator and carefully explained what was needed. I felt like they did a good job for an honest price. I take good care of my vehicles and now I know where I can go to get them serviced to last many more miles. Sept. 2022

Mr. Bob Ortiz and his staff provided excellent service to me after I encountered a problem driving down to St. Petersburg, Florida from New York City. He was professional, courteous and resolved the problem in a quick and timely manner. His rates are very reasonable. I will recommend him to my family/friends who live in the area or travel to the area.
